The history of lawn mowers Posted by : admin / Posted on : Nov 06,2020

It has existed since 1805, when the lawn mower was manpower and there was no power support.
In 1805, the Englishman Pracknet invented the first machine that harvests grains and can cut weeds. The machine is driven by humans and the rotary knife is driven by gears to cut the grass. This is the embryonic form of the lawn mower.
In 1830, British textile engineer Bill Pudding obtained a patent for a roller lawn mower, and won praise.
In 1832, Ransoms Agricultural Machinery Company began mass production of drum mowers.
In 1831, the British textile master Kabylia obtained the world's exclusive patent for the tumbler.
In 1833, Lansems Agricultural Machinery Company began mass production of drum-type lawn mowers. In the 19th century, this lightweight and easy-to-operate drum mower was widely used in the green belt beside traffic roads.
In 1902, the Englishman London Ens made a drum lawn mower powered by an internal combustion engine. The principle is still in use today.
We usually see this kind of lawn mower on American country TV. It can be used to trim the lawn easily.
With the rapid rise of the lawn industry, China began to use power-storage reciprocating lawn mowers in the 21st century. At the end of the 19th century, protecting a lawn was extremely physically demanding. For example, in the large estate in Blenheim (a village in western Bavaria, Germany), if 200 workers are employed, 50 of them are maintenance turf. In the season when the grassland grows wildly, it is necessary to mow the grass every ten days. The mowers are holding very long tools (sickle: the blade is serrated and needs to be sharpened with a sharpening stone to keep it sharp) in a row to mow the grass (actually it works more like sawing the grass with a saw) ). After the work is completed, the lawn is full of sawn blades of grass, and then the grass blades on the ground are picked up to feed the cattle and sheep on the farm, which saves time and reduces the damage to the pasture. It consists of a parallel four-bar lifting device, a frame, a left and right single-wing weeding device, and a complete machine deviation adjustment device.
